About the Opportunities:
I have been asked to look for Quantity Surveyors / Senior Quantity Surveyors for 14 different well-respected Concrete Frame and Groundwork subcontractors based in and around London / South East. If interested, I am happy to divulge company names and details when we first speak to establish if you want to progress or not. What I can say is these options vary from £40m turnover subcontractors to £200m+ turnover subcontractors, so there is a variety of sized organisations to consider, all with a variety of career options to offer.
Each opportunity will involve the usual surveying duties (i.e., taking projects from start to final account making sure budgets are maintained and profit levels are maximised while reporting any necessary changes) on reinforced concrete (RC) frame and associated groundwork packages for a mixture of residential and commercial clients.
Each opportunity will report to the company’s commercial director and you will be responsible for anywhere from 1 to 5 live packages at any one time (depending on your level of experience and the individual package sizes). Package values for each of these contractors range from £1m up to £50m each (with the majority being between £5m to £20m each) and all are in and around London.
About the Requirements:
The requirements for these opportunities are fairly straightforward;
I can only consider individuals who have experience working as a Quantity Surveyor or Senior Quantity Surveyor for either Groundwork or Concrete Frame subcontractors in the UK. Our clients only want to consider individuals from rival subcontractor backgrounds.
Based on the locations, these roles would suit individuals based in or around London, and while some office locations will suit you more than others, it is worth noting, at least two of these positions offer remote working and the rest will all involve a certain amount of autonomy as you will be responsible for managing your own diary to get around your own site locations.
And due to the technical nature of these opportunities, it is also crucial that all applicants are degree qualified in Quantity Surveying or Commercial Management.
About the Benefits & Rewards:
For the right professional, our clients are looking to offer a market-leading package including a strong starting salary or day rate with added benefits.
If you are PAYE you can expect a starting salary ranging from £70,000 to £100,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits, and targeted related bonuses.
If self-employed, day rates range from around £300 to £450 per day (depending on your experience) and you will be covered for travel costs and you will also be given project-related bonuses.
About Me, Your Consultant:
My name is Andrew Jackson and I am one of the founding directors of Cityscape Recruitment Ltd. I have over 15 years of experience in civil engineering & construction recruitment, during which time, I have specialised in the niche sectors of concrete frames, groundworks, basement construction, and demolition.
So, what does that mean for you? It means, I work with the vast majority of the groundwork & concrete frame businesses in the UK and I can help not only introduce you, but I can give you up to date information on each of them (the good parts and the less positive parts), helping you make an informed decision so you can take your career forward. I’ve been doing this for a fair while now and I’ve maintained a positive reputation doing what I do because I don’t tell people false truths, I tell them everything I know and then let them choose. My job is to get you the options, give you the information, and then let you decide what feels right for you.
How to Apply:
I am more than happy to discuss this opportunity with people over the phone or face to face in a fully confidential manner (you can get to know me while I get to know you). And I know this is an incestuous sector and I fully understand the importance of keeping things discrete.
Alternatively, it would be ideal to see a copy of your CV to understand your previous experience and employment. In line with GDPR, nothing will be done with your CV/details until we have discussed the role in detail anyway, but having gained an understanding of your formal past, this may help when we come to talk and discuss the option.
